Morgan + Wells

Leather Goods Workshop

Morgan + Wells is a small leather goods workshop based in York. Everything is hand cut and hand stitched by leatherworker, Naomi Wells Smith.

With a passion for quality and durability, Naomi uses the traditional tools of the trade, she saddle stitches every item in her wooden stitching clams and completes each piece with beeswax and elbow grease.
